This film was the winner of the Salt Lake City competition of the 48 Hour Film Project in 2008. My wife wrote and directed it as a first-time filmmaker. The requisites of the film were the following: 1) It had to be 7 minutes or less; 2) It had to have a character named Janice Simon, who was an instructor of some sort; 3) It had to have the line, “Just wait and see.”; 4) It had to feature a jewel as a prop; and of course, it had to be written, shot, edited and submitted in 48 hours. We drew the Horror genre out of a hat and this is what we made.
Director: Wendy Santiano
Original Format/Camera: HD/Sony PMW-EX1
Interesting trivia: We named our third son after the creepy guy.
